Wilshere hails Welbeck after new Arsenal star’s England show!! 0

Posted on September 09, 2014 by admin

There were lots of people lining up to heap praise on the newest Arsenal star Danny Welbeck after the 23-year old striker stunned Switzerland in Basel with two well taken goals to cap an excellent all-round performance for England in the Euro 2016 qualifier last night, but no one had higher praise than his new club team mate and international colleague Jack Wilshere.

The 22-year old midfielder has worked with Welbeck before, of course, most recently at the World Cup finals in Brazil. But Wilshere reckons that the new central role he is likely to play for Arsenal is really his best position and that Welbeck could be brilliant there for club and country, as revealed in a Daily Mail report.

Should Arsenal repeat England’s Wilshere position? 0

Posted on September 09, 2014 by admin

I know that the instant reaction of most Arsenal fans will be to say, no way should Arsene Wenger even think about trying to use Jack Wilshere in the same position as the England manager tried in Switzerland last night.

In fact it remains to be seen whether Roy Hodgson himself will repeat the experiment of using Wilshere as the deepest lying midfielder, as the Arsenal man was the first player to be subbed off as England won 2-0 thanks to the two goals scored by our new striker Danny Welbeck.

Former Arsenal star says signings NOT enough for title challenge! 2

Posted on September 08, 2014 by admin

Whatever your thoughts are on how well Arsene Wenger has added to his Arsenal squad during the summer transfer window, and those opinions are widely different among Gooners and will continue to be a major source of argument and discussion as the season rolls on, I think we can all agree on one thing and that is the hope that it is enough to mount a serious title challenge this season.

Former Arsenal and England centre forward Alan Smith, however, thinks that we are all going to be disappointed in that respect again. The 51-year old scored over 100 goals for the Gunners in his time, including the first in that title winning victory at Highbury made famous by the film Fever pitch.

Arsenal AND England to get BIG boost from Welbeck transfer!! 1

Posted on September 04, 2014 by admin

With Olivier Giroud on the injury list for the next four months or so and Yaya Sanogo looking as bereft of confidence in front of goal as he ever has since joining Arsenal last summer, Arsene Wenger will be hoping that our new signings Danny Welbeck and Alexis Sanchez can settle in and start to score goals very quickly.

As we have already started to see, Alexis looks good for the Gunners and with his pace, power and ability, he should really suit the Premier League and our own particular style. So what about Welbeck? I think that the fact he has already played alongside quite a few of his new team mates with the England national team will certainly help, as the former United forward suggests in his interview on

Forget Falcao, Arsenal fans should be happy with Welbeck!! 6

Posted on September 01, 2014 by admin

Look Arsenal fans, I am not saying that the (not official yet) new Arsenal forward Danny Welbeck is as good as Radamel Falcao, or that Arsenal should not be in the market for the best players in the world. But I am being realistic and saying that before Falcao was on the table, the arrival of Welbeck today would have been welcomed a lot more by Gooners.

Once we were linked with the Colombian, however, Arsenal fans were never going to be happy with anything less than him or Cavani, so as soon as we hear about the Man United and England man, there are moans and groans and people saying he is a United reject.

No Bony but can Welbeck and Reid rescue Arsenal transfer window? 7

Posted on September 01, 2014 by admin

Right about now, Arsenal fans, I would settle for Arsene Wenger signing just about any player he could get his hands on. But that is just the deadline day jitters getting to me and in the cold light of day, I agree that there is no point bringing in a player just for the sake of it when they are unlikely to play.

We don’t want another Kim Kallstrom or Park Chu-Young but if we are not going to get a top, top, top player then maybe a couple of pretty handy ones would do. So I was hoping that the latest Arsenal transfer rumour reported by Metro has some truth to it. The paper claimed that Wenger was to make a late double swoop for Wilfried Bony and Winston Reid.

Final proof that Arsenal are lying to fans? 11

Posted on September 01, 2014 by admin

It seems to happen every year to Arsenal fans and we keep falling for it. The club promises the earth and delivers a handful of dirt. Now although it was painful and frustrating to sell our best players and replace them with inferior ones, if at all, while paying off the Emirates stadium, I think we could at least understand that there was a plan for the future.

Arsenal have 3 hours to seal Reus transfer! Come on Wenger!! 8

Posted on September 01, 2014 by admin

With Arsenal having apparently tried and failed to seal a stunning deadline day for Radamel Falcao, only to be beaten by the panic stricken Man United, Arsene Wenger and his backroom staff are under the cosh to bring some players in before the transfer window closes tonight.

But if one of those targets is Marco Reus from Borussia Dortmund, as a report by Metro claims, then the Frenchman has even less time, because the transfer window for the German Bundesliga closes in about three hours from now, at 5 p.m. British time.

Arsene Wenger admits that Sanogo has a “problem” 7

Posted on September 01, 2014 by admin

Yesterday Arsenal played Leicester with Yaya Sanogo as their Main striker, and the youngster (who is yet to score a competitive goal for the Gunners)was slated by Arsenal fans after the game. With Olivier Giroud injured all Gooners are now begging Wenger to sign another striker todayto give us a chance of staying in the title race.

Wenger admitted that Sanogo had a problem, but also indicated that”it wouldn’t last long”.

“When you are 21 and play up front and don’t score it is very quickly a problem,” said Wenger.

Arsenal legend tells Wenger straight! Sign a striker or else!! 4

Posted on September 01, 2014 by admin

Alan Smith joined Arsenal from Leicester in 1987 and scored over 100 goals for us before hanging up his boots. The player nicknamed Smudger may not have been the biggest star in the world, but he knew where the back of the net was and scored some vital goals for the club, including the only goal as the Gunners won the European Cup Winners’ Cup final.

And he wants Arsenal to do well, which is why he has told Arsene Wenger in a Daily Star report in no uncertain terms that Arsenal can forget about winning the Premier League title unless the Frenchman brings a top quality centre forward to the Emirates today.
